We stopped in late and were pleasantly surprised. Service was friendly and prompt. Felt like we were regulars. Shrimp and eggplant were excellent! The best Mai Tai in Pittsburg.

I lived in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood for years, and New Dumpling House was my go-to for Friday take out or Saturday eat-in lunch. Since moving away, I've made a point of stopping here when flying into Pittsburgh, and I'm amazed by the consistency of the quality and flavor of the food. The dumplings, per the restaurant's name are a... More

The suishi was very good as was the sesame shrimp and the Mala chicken. Egg rolls and the soups were also good. Only negative was they forgot the little chips with the order.

We like the food here but the person who takes the order can be very rude, I mean extremely and noticeably rude. Also, the atmosphere is unwelcoming and not a warm environment, so we prefer take out. It is unfortunate because the food is pretty good most of the time.

Usually reliable Chinese food with friendly service that sometimes lags a bit when they get busy. The Sesame shrimp was very good, the General Tso chicken a little too crisp this time but ok, the vegetable egg roll very good. The place is better than average but not always very good.

We've been going to the New Dumpling House for a while now, it's predictably good, with friendly service, clean and orderly. At lunch they have unbeatable $6 meals which will almost assuredly provide leftovers. They have an extensive menu, including good quality sushi. Caveat: we once went in the evening with a large group and completely overwhelmed them. We won't... More

The food is usually pretty good. The last time we ate in the restaurant was cold inside so we tried take out last night. Just as good as normal. The sesame shrimp is very good as are the new type egg rolls. So is the pork with black bean.

The food is more Chinese than the typical "Chinese" restaurants offer. The dim sum menu is delicious and affordable. It has long been a favorite lunch spot for me.

We have been regulars since Sq Hill is one way for us to get home from Shadyside. We have had the best lunches every time. The food is delicious and the service efficient and timely. The soups and meals are generous and we often take home a good portion to be enjoyed later. . We just love this place.

Thank h m
